Celebs Who Died In 2023

Tina Turner, 83

Regarded as the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll, for decades Tina Turner was a force in the music world thanks to her powerful singing and endless energy when she performed.

From her start with ex-husband Ike Turner in the 1950s, to her historic comeback in the 1980s that made her one of the biggest performers in the world, to her starring in movies (“Tommy,” “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome”) and a hit movie made about her (“What’s Love Got to So with it”), Turner was truly a legend in the entertainment world.

Turner is one of the best-selling artists of all time with 12 Grammys, she is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and is the first black artist and first female to be on the cover of Rolling Stone.

Her hits will be beloved forever: “Private Dancer,” “Better Be Good to Me,” “Proud Mary,” “What’s Love Got to Do with it,” and, yes, she even did a James Bond song with “GoldenEye.”

Turner died on May 24, no cause was given.
